Is God Truly Good? | The Merciful Judge

In Chapter 3, we see Paul talk of 2 categories of people; the Jews and the Gentiles.

But Paul tells us that all the people, Jew or non-Jew had all fallen short of the glory of God, none was good and all needed saving. And this salvation could only come through faith and not works. In Chapter 4, he uses 2 examples to support his statement, Abraham and David.
